The 2013 box set The Complete Remastered Recordings on Black Saint & Soul Note includes three of trumpeter Dave Douglas' albums with his String Group, as well as three albums by other artists on which he was featured. Included is 1993's Parallel Worlds, 1996's Five, and 1999's Convergence, as well as Rova's 1995 album John Coltrane's Ascension, bassist John Lindberg's 1998 release Bounce, and bassist Mark Dresser's 1994 album Force Green. With over six hours of music, this anthology compiles much of the genre-crossing, exploratory modern creative jazz that brought Douglas to the attention of the greater jazz community. With beautifully remastered sound, this Black Saint and Soul Note collection is a must-have for Douglas fans who have yet to discover this period of the prolific artist's career.

To hear many hard bop hard-liners tell it, all avant-garde jazz is nothing more than atonal screaming. The problem with such sweeping generalizations is that some avant-garde jazz is, in fact, quite musical. A perfect example is Dave Douglas' Convergence, an experimental, adventurous outing that incorporates everything from classical and chamber music to Jewish, Middle Eastern, and East European music.

There is indeed a spirit that moves through Dave Douglas' first Brass Ecstasy recording: the late Lester Bowie. Bowie's Brass Fantasy group cut a few compelling albums that combined cover versions of all sorts of music – as well as originals – that were arranged for a brass orchestra. The most famous of these, The Great Pretender, is an obvious model for Douglas on this outing. The four brass players include Vincent Chancey on French horn, Luis Bonilla on trombone, Marcus Rojas playing the tuba, and Douglas, of course, on trumpet.

Crime pays handsomely in this smart and stylish double feature based on the adventures of Arsene Lupin, fiction’s most famous gentleman thief. John and Lionel Barrymore “make a marvelous team in their first film together” in the risque Pre-Code mystery Arsene Lupin (1932), costarring Karen Morley. A wily police detective matches wits with France's greatest criminal as the notorious thief attempts to make good on his threat to steal the Mona Lisa.
Melvyn Douglas “is a delight” in the witty sequel Arsene Lupin Returns (1938), co-starring Virginia Bruce and Warren William. Having faked his own death, Lupin (Douglas) Claims he’s retired and assumes the role of a gentleman farmer. But when a series of robberies suggests that the thief is still alive, an insurance detective (Warren William) attempts to track him down, convinced of Lupin‘s guilt.

The Bannon ranch is in a bad way because of an outbreak of foot and mouth disease that may force patriarch Homer (Melvyn Douglas) to destroy his entire herd. Loyal grandson Lonnie (Brandon de Wilde) is swayed by the swaggering, womanizing ways of his Uncle Hud (Paul Newman), who'd be perfectly content to sell off the suspicious herd before it can be condemned. Grandpa Homer doesn't seem to be holding up well under the pressure, while family housekeeper Alma (Patricia Neal) works overtime to fend off Hud's drunken advances.
